Course support for consultants; BREAKING HEALTH NEWS.

A NEW course has been developed for Welsh consultants who supervise trainee doctors and teach undergraduate medical students.

The specialist educational supervisor course has been set up by the Welsh postgraduate deanery in response to new guidelines by the Postgraduate Medical Education and Training Board.

Induction Training for Educators will improve the support and monitoring of training grade doctors and students working and studying across the NHS in Wales.

Dr Peter Donnelly, associate Dean at the Cardiff School of Postgraduate Medical & Dental Education said: "We have developed this course and many others like it in direct response to new guidelines and will ensure we continue to provide structured support for consultants in their roles as educational supervisors."

The short, free, training courses will be held at various NHS trusts across Wales throughout June, July and September and will count towards continuing professional development.

They also serve as a preliminary to the essentials for educational supervisors programme, and e-learning and face-to-face courses, such as the postgraduate certificate, diploma and MSc delivered by the Medical Education Unit in the deanery, which provide a stepped approach to supporting consultants in their educational roles.
